Start with your good intentions now and help others (and yourself) through the cold months together with Ympact020! From November we will organize various fun, challenging and educational volunteer activities to make an impact together. By doing something very small you can be a bright spot for someone in loneliness or poverty.
What do we do?
During the darkestmonths of the year, November and December, you can participate in various holiday activities from your own home but also on a location. Cooking for the homeless, helping to decorate a nursing home, but also putting together a Christmas package or a Sinterklaas gift for someone in need. Questions? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call/send an app to Alice (+31 6 2949 4812).
No winter blues for you this year, and make an impact! Are you also participating?
How does it work?
Do you want to participate and are you between 14 and 27 years old? Please fill in the information below. After your registration, we will contact you for an intake to get to know you, and tell you what the expectations are and to see if we are a good match:)
How much does it cost?
Participating is free and you will certainly become a richer person if you join us.
*You put together your Christmas package yourself from home and you also provide a Sinterklaas gift by yourself. On some days we ask you to bring your own lunch, but everything else will be arranged. Register now:)
During these activities you will not only help others, but you will also get to know yourself (even better)! The process you are participating in is called ‘YourCube’. A program in which you are introduced to volunteer work in 80 hours spread over 6 months. Based on your talents, interests and availability, you will have the opportunity to discover what suits you and what you like! In addition to your social commitment, you will also receive training and guidance in the field of personal development. At the end of your journey you will receive a European-recognition certificate! Get off to a flying start during these “Give Light” weeks, in which you will already complete the first more than 40 hours of your journey!
